remarks and observations

Book Recommendations from what I read in 2018

If I’ve kept accurate account, I’ve read 23 books in 2018, 7 of which were non-fiction. Here’s what I liked the most:

Fiction

Best:

The Speaker for the Dead – Orson Scott Card
The Hungry Tide – Amitav Ghosh
Cloud Atlas – David Mitchell
Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger (re-read)
The Italian Teacher – Tom Rachman
The Great Alone – Kristin Hannah

Quite Good:

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry – Fredrik Backman
Everything I Never Told You – Celeste Ng

Nonfiction

When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing – Daniel H. Pink
God is not Great – Christopher Hitchens
Crazy is Relative – Melissa Keller
The Tale of Two Dueling Neurosurgeons – Sam Kean
Educated – Tara Westover

Although I’m a little disappointed in my overall number of books read in 2018, it’s been a good year for finding the good ones. Let’s hope 2019 is as successful!
